I want everyone to remember the new rule!!!

ANY unfinished builds from past SSGB's are welcome to be carried forward into the existing one. Let's keep this thread busy with kits. Lord knows I have two to do this time, as I too, am behind. Love this time of year.

This year is coming together smoother than last year. We really have a good solid group once again and I think things are really starting to gel. Now that my busy season is winding down, just one more week. I can get back to hiding at the bench. Looking forward to moving some of these builds along.

I can confirm my gift arrived...last week.  It got mixed in with all the other Christmas delivery boxes that have been arriving and I didn't realize it until this evening while we were sorting out what arrived so far.   It is still unopened and will remain as such for 10 more days!

My disabled son has been in the hospital for a few days now. I am out most of the time. I will check in as soon as I can. Keep going. I hope to be back to normal anytime.
